About Home of Hope

Who We Are

What We Do

We nurture orphaned and vulnerable children by providing for all their needs to help them achieve their full potential.


We provide comprehensive education for children living at the home and from surrounding villages. Through our outreach programme, many children whose parents would not be able to afford to send them to school have received free education.


Our children are accommodated in small household size dormitories, each with a 'House Mother' to nurture and bring them up. As they reach adolescence, the children move into more independent accommodation and are given greater responsibility.


We have three areas of farmland that we work to provide food for our children and staff. Alongside maize, we grow nuts, beans, vegetables and fruit. In addition to our agricultural produce, we farm fish in ponds, and a small number of goats, chickens and cows for meat and dairy.


Our on-site nurse and clinic is not only our first point of call if children are in need of medical care, but frequently also for the local community. Basic medication can be dispensed here, and the facility contains dormitories and washrooms for those in isolation or needing additional care.


We believe that none of what we do today would have been possible without God. Therefore, our Christian faith plays an important role in what we do. Daily devotions are held at 6am, and we maintain strong links with many churches. Involvement in faith based activities is optional for the children.


Of course, providing for the many needs of our children is important, but we don't want life at Home of Hope to be boring either! Whether it be football on the field, climbing the large hill behind the home, visiting the local town or greeting our many international visitors, there is always something fun happening here!
